Storyline

Empowered by love and determined to move in with her long-distance boyfriend, the kind twenty-four-year-old deaf woman, Zoe, summons up her courage for a one-way trip across the vast and desolate American South-west, eager for a fresh start. Instead, Zoe encounters a band of sadistic white supremacists who will torture her, and leave her for dead in a shallow grave. There, in the serene and barren desert of New Mexico, a wise Native-American Shaman performs an ancient ritual of resurrection, unbeknownst to him that the impatient wandering spirits of the dead Apaches always crave for revenge. As a result, a betrayed entity creeps into Zoe, making her a vessel of retribution, to pitilessly destroy all those who wronged her, one by one. Now, Zoe is unstoppable. Can the savaged woman avenge her death? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

 
Made the best out of its budget and plot.
6 April 2014 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

Even ideas that were used and used can still make a small impact if executed correctly. Exactly the case with "Savaged" where you'll see some bad effects sometimes, or better say cheap ones, a plot that was used before a few number of times, but you will also see heart, a director that wanted to make a good movie, actors that were happy to play their role, all of these resulting into a good B horror.

It has some elements from "Contracted", some from "Freakdog" or maybe "The crow", anyway it was a fun ride, especially that they decided to limit the torture screen of the girl and show more of her vengeance. Maybe it lasted a tad bit more than it should have, but probably wanted to offer some deepness to it all.

So all in all, "Savaged" is an OK movie for many horror fans out there, not limited to one exact category, which is a good thing. So whoever you are and whatever your tastes are, you should give this one a try. Especially for those looking for a nice indie movie!
